Rail and Water Meet and Serve a Vast Inland Area

The caption is a little difficult to read in the image above, so here’s a legible version:

Second in tonnage only to New York, this natural harbor, with an area of 19 square miles and 49 miles of frontage, is at the western terminus of the Great Lakes. Rice’s Point, occupied by railway yards and fringed with elevators and coal-handling plants, is the chief protuberance on the shoestring city of Duluth, pressed between steep hills and the harbor. The small interstate bridge in upper center connects Duluth, Minnesota, and Superior, Wisconsin, the mightiest twins on our inland seas.
